Fractional laser technology is one of the most modern treatments in aesthetic medicine. It is used to treat wrinkles, scars, blemishes and stretch marks and in many cases shows spectacular results.
Fractional laser acts both deeply and superficially. Its main advantage is the activation of the fibroblasts and thus the production of new collagen and elastin cells. These cells give the skin a better texture and appearance.
How soon do I return to work after treatment with Fractional laser?
Immediately after the treatment and for the first 2-3 hours a mild burning feeling is present. For the next 2 days redness and mild swelling are apparent which subside gradually. Skin exfoliation takes place during the next 3-4 days. Make-up can be used to hide the effects of the procedure. The use of high SPF sunscreen cream is mandatory for at least 6 months after the treatment.
How many treatments will be needed in total?
That depends on the problem that we treat. For skin regeneration and fine wrinkles 1-3 treatments are usually sufficient, depending on the skin condition. For scars and stretch marks, the number of sessions depends on the severity of the situation.
Can Fractional laser help to eliminate stretch marks that appear during pregnancy?
Using Fractional laser technology has shown some very promising results in the treatment of stretch marks, especially the immature ones (red color). Elimination of these stretch marks though, should not be expected.
